The Stoney Creek Ranch presents an opportunity to step into a turn-key wildlife operation in the venerable brush country of South Texas, renowned for its ability to produce trophy whitetail. At approximately 469 acres, this property packs everything needed for the serious sportsman or the weekend adventurer. Whitetail, blackbuck antelope, quail, Rio Grande turkey, and dove are some of the species roaming the ranch. If you have a penchant for angling, there are two tanks stocked with bass.
This ranch is set up for both hunting and breeding of trophy whitetail. The sale includes six King Ranch deer blinds—one ground blind and five tower blinds. Three irrigated food plots are watered with golf course sprinkler systems. An 1800 feet Carrizo well pumps water through four-inch lines with a 25-horsepower pump at approximately 350 gallons per minute. There are two 5-acre breeding pens with water, and the ranch has been operated under a deer management permit since 2011. There are estimated to be between 100 and 150 whitetail and 15 to 20 blackbuck on the ranch.
Whether entertaining hunters or relaxing with the family, the 2bed/1 bath home near the front of the property is the centerpiece of a comfortable and easily accessible headquarters. With tile throughout, a full kitchen, and spacious living areas, the house is the perfect balance between simplicity and ranch luxury. Perhaps the most compelling feature is the screened in porch, a perfect place to drink coffee and greet the day. Included in the sale of the ranch home is all furniture, television, two gun safes, dishes, and cutlery.
Other improvements at the headquarters include a separate well and pumphouse with a covered, above-ground 3000-gallon tank for the house and breeder pens, covered cooking area, carport, storage shed, barn, and large covered storage for tractors and other rolling equipment.
With serious acreage and well-maintained improvements, the Stoney Creek Ranch has all the potential for a family ranch, corporate entertainment, livestock breeding, and the makings of a world-class deer breeding program.
